The beach park in Haleiwa is very pretty, as are all the North Shore beaches but it seems to be one of the more crowded beaches as people get to Haleiwa and stop. The parking is on the limited side as well.

Nothing out of the ordinary, nice quiet beach, rest rooms, plenty of parking. We just stopped, plopped on the sand and looked at the waves--one of the vendors who gives surfing lessons yelled out to us about the sea turtles that were just off shore, so we watched them for awhile. While in this town, make sure you visit Matsumoto... More

When there are no big waves, it’s just a very nice beach. I’m sure the waves add a lot to the desirability to hang out there.

Haliewa beach is narrow and the water is shallow for a ways out. Take your snorkel and swim to the rocks where numerous fish and turtles are. Rent a kayak and paddle down the canal. The sand or the water doesn't seem as clean as it does when you get out of town, but it is a fun beach.

Very family friendly beach and picnic area. Lots of free parking. Large beach with showers and bathrooms. I have seen multiple turtles here on every visit. Nice clam waves, easy for the kids to swim. There is a little bit of very small wood debris and rock, but overall one of my favorite beaches to visit.

There were lifeguards and nice sitting areas and it was very beautiful. Just sad we missed all the surfing.

This can be a great spot for beginner surfers, but be aware of other surfers and the shallow breaks.

Stopped to look at this gorgeous beach - wandered to the right of the tower and to a little cove. Just in the water were a group of sea turtles - at least 4 of them - just feeding off the rocks and floating around. Very peaceful. Lovely experience - worth stopping for sure!

We always stop here when driving by as we always see turtles close to shore. The water is usually very calm also.

It is fun to walk around the old town of Haleiwa. There are many buildings from the early 1900's. I was there on a Sunday and there was a long line of people buying rotisserie chickens being sold in a parking lot. They smelled wonderful!
